The United Kingdom of Greater Orcadia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Iain Gordon with an even hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates and stringent health and safety legislation. The quiet, industrious population of 11.418 billion Greater Orcadians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it prioritizes Healthcare, although Education, Environment, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Edinburgh. The average income tax rate is 78.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Greater Orcadian economy, worth 512 trillion Orcadian Pounds a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. Average income is 44,902 Orcadian Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bleach is the nation's most common pesticide, the government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, and education is transforming people into first-rate snobs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Orcadia's national animal is the Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Greater Orcadia is ranked 218,943rd in the world and 26th in Teremara for Fattest Citizens, with 8.77 Obesity Rate.
